Joanna Newsom Plays A New Song In San Francisco

American pianist/harpist Joanna Newsom included a new song in her short set at San Francisco’s Treasure Island Music Festival over the weekend.

The track, believed to be titled Look and Despair, was a solo piano track and contained lyrics that “tip from reflecting on the past to the not-so-distant future”, according to Pitchfork. Watch the full video of the performance below.

Also on the bill for the festival were the likes of The xx, M83, Public Enemy, Girl Talk and Australia’s own The Presets.

Earlier this year, Newsom debuted another new song – titled The Driver’s Wife – as part of a performance with Philip Glass.

Newsom is said to be working on a follow-up to her last album – 2010's Have One on Me; there’s no news on a release date yet.
